Item 8.01. Other Events

As discussed in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2020, in October 2020, Hurricane Zeta caused significant damage to portions of Entergy's service area in Louisiana, including New Orleans. The storm resulted in power outages, damage to distribution and transmission infrastructure, and the loss of sales during the power outages. Restoration costs for the repair or replacement of Entergy's electric facilities in areas with damage from Hurricane Zeta are currently estimated to be in the range of $220 million to $250 million, including $165 million to $185 million at Entergy Louisiana and $50 million to $60 million at Entergy New Orleans, with a minimal amount at other Entergy Utility operating companies. This estimate includes all costs to restore power and repair or replace the damages from the hurricane, except for the cost to repair or replace damage incurred to an Entergy Louisiana transmission line in southeast Louisiana, and the amount of that cost could be significant. The restoration plan for this transmission line and the related cost estimate is still being evaluated. Entergy is considering all available avenues to recover storm-related costs from Hurricane Zeta, including accessing funded storm reserve escrows and securitization. Storm cost recovery or financing will be subject to review by applicable regulatory authorities.
